The cost and perceived benefit of the safety feature should be incorporated in anyone’s purchasing decision. Mr Ron has dismissed it as too expensive for the benefit, so Sawstop is not for people who weight their decision that way. I place more weight on it. And, from the reviews and from what I’ve seen of it in person, it seems like a well-made saw. So if we assume it is above-average for its class, and therefore assume the brake alone adds $500-$1000 to the cost of the saw, this will set you back $50 – $100 per year if the saw lifespan is only 10 years, and it then self-destructs with no resale value. Seems affordable to me, compared most of the other insurance I pay, if you want to use the insurance analogy.
